Subject: Recent Circ
The previous night circulated to some extent as an FM broadcast, but this night was always a mystery until it showed up here and on Dave's #3 (the 2nd set had shown up a little before). The previous night (also on DaP3, partly) is a better show, but this show was ostensibly picked to put it in circ; and it does have a "newly discovered" Other One. The 2nd set is under an hour (1st sets were longer when Keith first joined). The official release removes long stretches in between. For Keith's benefit, the setlist was static for this tour.
First Set. Bertha isn't tight but the solo is amazing. Keith would find more in the songs later in the year. The rest is average '71 until Beat it On Down the Line-17 (one more than the night before) and Black Peter. Phil is great throughout this show but really good here and so is Bobby. Me and Bobby McGee was played almost every night and they had it down, but this still may be one of '71's best versions.
Second Set. A blind man takes your arm on this Comes a Time. Like most of these, it was better the night before, but the reputation of this show lies on The Other One. Phil is again terrific and there is certainly some great stuff all the way through. There's a crazy tranny into Keith's first-ever Deal. Johnny B. Goode is great (though even this is surpassed by the night before).
1st Set: C
2nd Set: C+
Overall = 3 Stars
Me & Bobby McGee - one of '71's best versions
The Other One - a monster of a TOO with a Cryptical too; must-hear
Johnny B. Goode - favorite Berry at the time
SOURCES: Gans apparently gave Miller this 112821 source while Dave's 3 was in the pipeline.
Dylan M - 8/6 was released part on DP35 & part on RT 1-3, so very unlikely to be a Dave's.

Definitely a good show, no doubt. Masterfully executed renditions of most of that new October 71' material and the newly established Grateful Dead song repertoire that had been building most progressively since May 1970.
I think the Detroit Theater show two days later is a better performance with more jams. However there are large nasty cuts in that show from existing seeds on the archive, so I'd imagine it's not complete enough to release. I could have also seen the Hollywood Palladium August 6th show as a better choice. Maybe a little obvious but still unreleased and displaying that primal Grateful Dead circa 71' at their best.
At any rate its obvious that this show is a standout for all the boys and perhaps most importantly Freshman Keith at the piano, still learning the tricks but aggressively (and mostly successfully) playing to impress. The lacking of a long multiple song jam-segment is forgivable considering the power of the standout "That's It for the Other One" suite, displaying Keith's true inherent ability to play this sort of music, at only his third performance with the Dead.
Anyways, decide for yourself, and grab it before they pull it. This board could be cleaned up with an HDCD Multi-track remastering no doubt, as some tape his is apparent especially during the first set.
Either way, thanks for picking this one for us Dave. Next time, lets go for a baller 80's show. haha.
